Hi Experts!
Is there a Window's Log File that contains File Deletion Activity?
I have an issue where files I allocate, on a W/2003 Server, disappear periodically. I don't know if there is a utility running that's performing a clean up or if an administartor is deleting these files.
I'm not Windows person. I'm just Admining an application on this server.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you.
Steve

You may enable auditing on every folder you wish.
right-mouse-click on the wished folder or drive -> properties -> Security -> Auditing -> Enable for file deletion.

After enabling file-deletion-auditing you may see the events inside event-viewer of the windows protocols (eventvwr.exe)
